    traditional japanese house,quiet,my type guesthouse instead of the modern style. i like this type traditional house . however a bit far from the nearest convenient store as well as the shopping area. very good place for relaxing and enjoy quiet life. if there's a chance to go Nara in future i may come back again.

    Lovely hostel with a traditional feel. Staff were fantastic and incredibly helpful. Let us keep our luggage here for extra time while we needed to travel with less things. Can’t complain at all!

    Great staff, cool people there although they don’t have keys for their lockers. Not good for anyone traveling with valuables - the place doesn’t feel unsafe but there are lots of people passing through

    Everything felt a little rundown. It's a nice and old house, but it could use a bit of a fixer-upper.

    Very Good

    A lovely authentic house- tall people watch your head. I only stayed one night which is probably all you need as they will hold you luggage if you get in early or leave late. This is not really a hostel where you can meet people too easily so not great as a solo traveller wanting to meet other people. But ok if you just want to do your own exploring of the town. If you have heavy bags its a 25 minute walk from the JR station. or 1000 yen in a taxi.
